Law360, Bloomberg Law, Private Funds CFO, Private Equity Wire, the Baltimore Business Journal and other media outlets covered the recent addition of partners Richard Starling and William Herrfeldt to McGuireWoods’ nationally recognized private equity team.
Starling and Herrfeldt advise fund sponsors on the organization, negotiation, structuring and operation of private investment funds, and regulatory and internal governance issues. Together, they strengthen the firm’s fund formation capabilities and enhance its novel Emerging Manager Program.
Starling joins the firm’s Charlotte office and comes from Robinson Bradshaw, where he co-chaired the fund formation and investment management group. He works with a variety of private funds and related products.
“McGuireWoods’ private equity team has built a well-deserved reputation as an industry leader, and I look forward to building on this momentum for the benefit of our clients in the investment management industry,” he said.
Herrfeldt joins McGuireWoods’ Baltimore office from Venable. His clients include emerging and established private fund and alternative investment managers, institutional investors and real estate investment managers.
“McGuireWoods’ entrepreneurial culture and innovative client service programs have made the firm a dominant player in the private equity space,” Herrfeldt said. “I am excited to be back at the firm and to collaborate with this outstanding team.”
